Thus 146 hypercholesterolemic individuals finished this study (n = 73 in the anthocyanin
group, 31 men and 42 women; n = 73 in the placebo group, 30 men and 43 women).
It is noteworthy that fruit anthocyanin
content was much higher than those of any other phenolic subclass analysed and therefore appear to contribute significantly to antioxidant capacity of fruits.
The antioxidant capacity was highest in the polymeric fraction and lowest in the anthocyanin
fraction (85 g and 6 g VCEAC per 100 g, respectively).
Fraction 1 contained the highest anthocyanin
concentration, thus it was designated as "anthocyanin
This experiment was undertaken to investigate if anthocyanin
in corn is broken down during in vitro incubation with ruminal fluid.
It is in this way that we find an abundance of anthocyanins
in the dark richness of blueberries, the nearly-black elderberries, the red raspberries and strawberries, and the purple eggplants and cabbages.
The first section of this review considers the ecophysiological role of anthocyanin
accumulation in leaves that is associated with ontogenetic (expanding and senescing leaves), abiotic (nutrient deficiency and UV light) and biotic (herbivory and pathogen infection) effects.
Good sources of phyroestrogens (plant-based chemicals, such as lutein, anthocyanin
, ellagic acid and lignans), they're a veritable medicine cabinet" for menopausal women.
Perhaps the most "famous" of these phytochemicals are the antioxidants Anthocyanin
White corollas from two distinct populations were unpigmented and differed in the anthocyanin
precursors that they accumulated.
